Spiced Frankfurters In A Hurry

A simple but interesting treatment is given to frankfurters as they gently simmer in a flavorful sauce of tomatoes, onions, green pepper and celery. Aromatic oregano and paprika add more good flavor to this quick and easily prepared one-pot meal.

1 to 1 1/4 lbs frankfurters
2 Tbsp. butter or margarine

2 to 3 stalks celery, sliced
1 can (16 oz) whole tomatoes with liquid
1 tsp. dried oregano leaves
1/2 tsp paprika
Dash black pepper
Salt to taste

Tips: If you like, you can substitute other smoked sausage for the frankfurters and used canned ready-cut tomatoes for whole.


1. Cut each frankfurter into thirds. Melt 1 Tbsp. of the butter in a skillet. Lightly brown the frankfurters. Remove and keep warm.

2. Add remaining butter. Saute onions till lightly browned. Add the garlic. Saute 1 min. longer. Stir in green pepper and celery. Cook 3 or 4 min. more or until tender-crisp.
